Friday Edition Video of the Week: The Canadian Men's Eight Trains for London
Yesterday, exactly one month before the rowing begins in London, the official Olympic lineups were announced by Rowing Canada Aviron, and can be viewed in full in the RCA press release posted to RowingNews.com. The men's eight, made up of Gabe Bergen, Jeremiah Brown, Andrew Byrnes, Will Crothers, Douglas Csima, Robert Gibson, Malcolm Howard, Conlin McCabe, and coxswain Brian Price, will undoubtedly be one of the most competitive in the field this year, having taken bronze last season in Bled, and having set a new world's best time in the heats in Lucerne. The above video is another great one coming out of the Canadian camp, giving further insight into what it's like to be a part of the Spracklen training program.
Henley Friday has come to a close, and saw out Potomac BC Thames Cup VIII fall to a very competitive crew from Royal Chester. Congrats to Potomac and John Forrest on a solid performance at HRR–as Henley veterans no doubt they'll know where best to drown their sorrows/soak up some atmosphere along the Thames.
The timetable for racing has now been posted for tomorrow:
More to come from Henley-on-Thames!
